Fear not. We'll take up the value you stole by paying higher prices. No sweat. Kira

I thought that a little shady as well.
As much as I may disdain Walmart, they've never screwed me on any purchase I've made from any of their locations, so I'd have no reason to try to screw them.
I'll add that I only shop Walmart for clearance deals and that only infrequently.

I guess I as calculating more along the lines of 75% off then.

Would be crazy to learn the at-cost price of their oils, for better or for worse.

Now that's funny!

I'm expecting $2 a quart and probably no more.

I also expect that the AAP 'Breaking Bad' location near me will continue to have employees with an incurable case of meth mouth.

Lots of M1 TDT 5W40 for $1/quart, some ATF+4 & Kendall GT-1 10W40 for $1/quart, and a TON of Delo 400 SAE 30 for between 99 cents to ONE CENT a gallon (down to the last 2 gallons, started with 35). AZ is a weird outfit, they normally sell oil for 2 or 3 times as much as anyone else, then they suddenly GIVE IT AWAY!

I'd really like to see a lot more ATF's on clearance this year.

That mark up would be 4.02X and that would be +300%. A 100% markup is 2X the price. A 900% markup is 10X the price.

Interesting! With all the 0w20 I have, may look for some more Xw40 to blend with

Cheap ATF would be awesome

I wouldn't mind picking up a few more 5-quart jugs of M1 AFE 0W30 at $5 apiece like a couple years ago, but I'm not holding my breath.

Not a real deal until it hits $1. Then it's a steal of a deal.

Seems like the AAP QSUD clearance + rebate is going to be hard for Autozone to beat.

Game on! haha

What API rating was the Pennzoil HM stuff? My Jeep would have loved it I am sure.

I bought a bunch of that Pennzoil Ultra Euro stuff 2 years ago. Last year, their new bottles with I am assuming the GTL formulation were also on clearance.
